A Final Look at Halo 4

331d ago ... If you’re looking for a physical analogy for the comparative differences between Halo 4 and its predecessors, then you need look no further than the map Ragnarok. A battle-worn version of its big brother Valhalla, Ragnarok’s thinning grass, sterile metallic structures and lack of soul represents a small cog in the rapidly corroding machine that is Halo 4. But has the damage to the series alr...

Thank you Sony.

353d ago ... We have all been there toying with the idea to just give up on gaming and live a normal life they say. But sometimes you have to wonder to yourself if there is such a thing as a normal life without games. I had this episode about 3 months back after a long run with Microsoft's console that is the Xbox 360.I was playing as regular as every day and starting to get very bored with the online as...

Sequelization: It's a double standard.

355d ago ... There's a question I often hear posed by many gamers and it goes something like this. "Why is it that Mario games always seem to get a free pass when it comes to sequels and rehashes, yet game franchises like Assassins creed, God of War, Halo and the like get criticised and sometimes even marked down for it?" Well I have a theory for why that seems to be the case and it goes as follows....

What if?

366d ago ... What if Napoleon had kept going? What if the cold war was an actual war? What if Sean Penn had decided not to do acting? So many alternative histories could have been made (I think we can all agree the Sean Penn one needs to happen now) but why look into the past. The past is the past and we should move on. However, what about the future? The point of this blog is to explore the fanboy's orgasm...

Enough With Wanting Sequels

386d ago ... You know, you'd think with a new generation of consoles ready to move into full swing, people would be excited for new experiences and trying out never before seen ideas, but all I've seen lately are people wanting more of the same. Well, not "lately" but it's been talked about a lot more. I've ragged on the Xbox One a lot recently because Microsoft are terrible for the industry, but the one...

Call of Duty is BOUND to Fail

399d ago ... In a recent blog post, I predicted that the next generation of consoles would bring the end of Call of Duty. This is something that currently might be hard to believe, as the franchise shatters records every single year. It's a billion dollar franchise, backed by millions of dollars spent on advertising and promotions. Call of Duty is massive, and that's exactly the way Activision made it. H...

The Game Console that i will be buying this generation is..?

400d ago ... I am not a fan boy I am a vagrant core gamer I have in the past owned ; a PS3 ,a Xbox360 ,a PS2 , a Xbox, a PS1 ,a N64 , a SEGA Mega Drive , Nintendo Gameboy , An Atari ST , Spectrum ZX and 5 different Gaming PCs . My loyally to any particular brand is not guaranteed. I will choose the console which best suits me . So which console will I buy this Generation? The last generation I bought on...

Put the shovel down

409d ago ... Lets face it, even the most hardened Microsoft fan knows that Microsoft are digging them selves into a deep hole with the Xbox One. I can not imagine the meeting where Microsoft employees sat around a table and agreed that the Xbox Ones policies where a great idea, who are these people and do they have a clue what gamer's actually want form a console. I can understand that piracy is costing dev...

Why Sony won E3 (it's not why you think)

413d ago ... 25 years from now, on the brink of the next-next-gen, people will be asking one another in hushed tones "I wonder if so-and-so will pull a Sony like they did with the PS4..." History was made yesterday, and it's for a very simple reason: gamers won. For the first time in years, a multi-billion dollar company paid attention to the heart's desire of gamers everywhere. Plenty of fantastic games we...

Let the Hypocrisy Flow

414d ago ... Xbox One doesn't have backwards compatibility? No biggie. Ps4 requires payment to play online? I wipe myself with $5 a month! Xbox One has mandatory installs? Whatever, man; Halo! I read a blog by DedicatedToGamers a few days ago, in which he said (in summary) 'I'm not afraid of a console with bad policies, I'm afraid of the gamers that accept them'. I must now concur with grave prejud...

Microsoft’s E3 Show and Rating

414d ago ... Microsoft knew they had to come hard and be all about games after the horrendous Xbox One reveal, and that’s exactly what they did. But did it work? Metal Gear Solid 5: Microsoft kicked the game off with Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, and boy does it look amazingly good, however, it’s also coming to PS4. It seems like MS and Sony have switched lovers with Sony courting Bungie, and Micro...

The new Xbox, titled "Xbox One" has been revealed and I'm rather scared.

433d ago ... The new "Xbox One" has been revealed. Microsoft has drawn back the curtain. What they seem to take so much pride in has the gaming community reeling back. It's not quite as promising as we'd hoped. At the release event, a whole array of major upcoming games were showcased and announced for Microsoft's new "Xbox One". Titles like "Call of Duty: Ghosts" for Xbox One can't help but provoke image...

The Evolution Of the Multi Player FPS

452d ago ... Just as there's been evolution in species, there's also been evolution in just about every little thing we, as humans, can produce. In my generation movies started with Star Wars, and now we get the pleasure to experience the exhilaration of the many Marvel hero movies. With food our french fries were innovated into chili cheese fries then to carne asada fries. I'm so, so grateful for those car...

Nintendo Has Most Certainly Won The Next Generation

463d ago ... Nintendo, the creators of the game industry have already won this new generation with the Wii U. With its clearly vast library of games and incredible exclusives like Halo 5, Final Fantasy XVII, Uncharted 7 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 8, it has already bested the test of time and has shown us what a next gen system is truly capable of, rendering the upcoming Nextbox and PS4 obsolete and dea...

Xbox Live Hacked by Anonymous?

471d ago ... An article from yesterday raised the idea that Xbox Live may have been hacked by Anonymous in retaliation for the rumours suggesting Microsoft's next console will be always-online. N4G mods have since changed the title and source, but you can see the comments do not reflect what the current title suggests.

MS's silence on the NextBox is a good thing...

490d ago ... Sony, Sony, Sony. I really do like Sony, and they've been the talk of the town lately. They hit a home run with their Playstation 4 reveal that was just a few weeks ago, and now at GDC they've been picking up even more positive press in regards to their absolutely aggressive upcoming plan to bring more and more indie developers into the fold. Not only did they announce a ton of upcoming games f...

Getting your Xbox profile back. Not!

498d ago ... I have 2 Xbox 360's so this is not about how the Xbox sucks and it's not about how the Xbox live sucks. It is about how to get your profile back. You can't. Microsoft has locked down Xbox live like Ft. Knox. I understand why they have. They don't want to be hacked and after what happened to the Psn network who could blame them. The problem lies in how to get your profile back when somethin...

Can Destiny beat Halo?

527d ago ... Recently, Bungie unveiled their brand new video game titled Destiny. If you guys do not know, Bungie were the original creators of the gaming franchise, Halo. After their final Halo game creation, Halo: Reach, they left their whole universe in the hands of Microsoft at the end of 2010 which then formed 343 Industries. 343 Industries is a growing company with over 200 hard workers, and they alre...

Sony Will Beat Microsoft next-gen

540d ago ... I've been doing a lot of thinking about this and I have come to the conclusion that Sony will beat Microsoft. I will explain. Microsoft and Sony are the ones in direct competition. They are after the same fan base. They both take similar approaches. Both have similar gaming experiences. The difference is Microsoft has no clear path. Sony continue to put out plenty of core first party exclusi...
